Seattle Mariners outfielder Mike Morse tested his ailing quadriceps strain -- which sent him to the 15-day disabled list on June 21 -- by running the bases this weekend. All seems to be going well in his rehab from injury, and manager Eric Wedge said if that continues to be the case Morse will begin a rehab assignment in the minors this week, according to Jeremy Warnemuende of MLB.com. "He's OK," Wedge said of Morse. "He's still feeling some soreness, so I think what we're going to do is probably give him the next couple days and hopefully get him out [on a rehab assignment] midweek." Wedge said Morse is expected to join the team's Triple-A affiliate, which returns home on Wednesday to host a four-game series from Thursday to Sunday. Morse could spend the entire weekend in the minors before being reevaluated. If all goes well, the slugger could be back with Seattle by the end of the weekend or early next week. Seattle acquired Morse this winter from the Washington Nationals in the three-team trade that also involved A.J. Cole, Ian Krol, John Jaso and Blake Treinen. In his first season with the Mariners, the 31-year-old is hitting .251/.313/.454 with nine doubles and 11 home runs. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
